Large Veined Melon Head

Melonheads are large extra-terrestrial unieterrors that live space, close to labyrinth seas. The LVMH in their UETO code means Large Veined Melon Head, referring to the large vein that bulges out of their sides along their body.

Basic Information


Melonheads have a large white body, similar to that of beluga whales from Earth. The end tapers into a tail with vertical fins, unusual in cetaceans (even space ones). Their head is proportionally ridiculous, twice as thick as the thickest part of their body. On top of their heads are circular and oval shaped holes which release harsh sounds to deter predators, and as sonar. Their famous veins start just behind their heads, and extend all the way to their tails where they then split up and decrease in size and visibility. Their fins are long, thin and wavy, and barely aid them in swimming as they are more for show.

Genetics and Reproduction

Melonheads mate during no particular time, as time is rather hard to tell in space. Melonheads usually mate when labyrinth seas flatten out, which is caused by the gravitational pull of planets nearby. They mate for life, finding a partner when they're 6 or 7. They separate after mating season, and meet up in "special places" that have significance to themselves.
Females give birth to 2 babies each season; gestation period is 216 - 231 Greenerth days.

Growth Rate & Stages

Baby melonheads are given rigorous training by their parents, as they need to quickly learn to hunt for food. Babies are taught to catch some space fish, like humpback fish.

Ecology and Habitats

Melonheads live in labyrinth seas, all across the Yonderverse. They can survive outside of the seas, albeit briefly. They are a top predator, and are a common nuisance to other creatures. They are considered bullies in labyrinth seas, as they often scare other creatures out of their homes so they can have them themselves.

Dietary Needs and Habits

Melonheads are carnivorous, and consume an array of creatures that live alongside them in the labyrinth seas. They usually prey on small fish and other creatures, as they are easier to hunt, but the larger and more experienced cetaceans prey on bigger creatures.

Perception and Sensory Capabilities

Melonheads have the ability to use sonar, which benefits them in the vacuum of space. They use it constantly, to navigate the seemingly lifeless environment. While most of the time they don't get close to large objects, it's more used in case they run into another of their species and injure the both of them.
The space cetaceans also use the sounds they can make to scare off predators. They have only a few, but they'd rather survive than risk running into one.
